Really? I have two sizes (one for the light pipes and the full-sized
monster) and dread using them when there are no other options available. I'd
rather pay a plumber at that point than break those puppies out...
Heh, they have many more applications. I keep a small one
in the kitchen for bottles and jars. I frequently use one
for repairs/adjustments to the sprinkler pipes. I've
removed a stuck filter from a camera lens with a strap
wrench. Removed escutcheons from the shower faucets.
And that's just this afternoon... okay I'm kiddin' but
I do use mine very frequently.

I can't function without a scribe, a leatherman, and a caliper.
Not to mention socket drives, 1/4, 3/8, and 1/2 inch for the drill and
square, torx and clutch head bits.
I could go on and on. How about a gas soldering pencil, propane torch,
Solder, flux, pipe cutter, CPVC cleaner and glue. I could go on and on.
Now that we have a nice big list of small tools (as opposed to full size
drill presses and lathes etc. ) we should have a well made tool
cabinet/chest to keep them all in a good place.
And since you are no doubt going to make a mess, a shop vacuum.
And of course we need a good variety of glues and epoxies to hold stuff
together and a bunch C-clamps to hold the project until the glue dries.
